7. 1) Introduction to BSP trees - Efficiency of ray shooting Total ray shooting time = time for ray-object intersection tests + time for ray traversal of BSP tree 1) Decreasing number of ray-object intersection tests 2) Faster ray-object intersection tests 3) Decreasing number of traversal steps 4) Faster traversal step Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

Matching two traversal histories into common one: Traversal History for R1: B D Common Traversal History for all rays between R1 and R2: = HLCTS(R1, R2): Traversal History for R2: head B D Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

13. HLCTS2 R1 R3 R2 HLCTS1 4) Hierarchical LCTS - contd. 1) Matching traversal histories for two or more rays. 2) Matching traversal histories for rays with the previously constructed common traversal history. HLCTS1 - constructed from traversal history of R1 and R2 Ray R3 - traversal uses HLCTS1 HLCTS2 - constructed from HLCTS1 and traversal history of R3 Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

14. 5) Further Improvements of LCTS concept 1) Unification of empty leaves. 2) Common termination object. 3) Initial leaf sequence. Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

16. Simplified LCTS(R1,R2): head tail C R2 R1 More simplified LCTS(R1,R2): = tail head C 5) Termination object D 5 B A 4 Ray origin y 2 C 3 1 x Termination object must be convex ! Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

17. HLCTS2 R1 R3 R2 HLCTS1 5) Initial Leaf Sequence - only for HLCTS Use: For matching common traversal sequence with new traversal history of ray. How: Initial leaf nodes of HLCTS need not be matched, but they are copied only. Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

Hidden Surface Removal: four methods - use of SLCTS and HLCTS - using LCTS concept in one or two dimensions SLCTS SLCTS 5 7 6 SLCTS 1 SLCTS 2 1 2 5 6 15 16 13 3 4 8 9 17 7 18 19 20 10 11 12 21 22 14 3 4 Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

21. ad 6) Application and Results - contd. - Number of traversal steps decreases typically by more than 60 %. - Time devoted to ray shooting decreases typically by 20 %. - Speedup achieved is scene and resolution dependent. Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

22. 7) Conclusions and Further Work - New concept of traversal coherence introduced. (not restricted to BSP tree only.) - SLCTS and HLCTS. - Hidden Surface Removal tested. Vlastimil Havran, Jiri Bittner: LCTS: Ray Shooting using Longest Common Traversal Sequences

23. 7) Further Work - automatic setting of image resolution for SLCTS. - application for higher order rays in global illumination algorithms. - other image sampling patterns for HLCTS in hidden surface removal. - use of LCTS in rendering animation sequences.
